Nothing says holidays like desserts, and this pretty little dessert setup just screams for it’s own spot at Easter brunch, doesn’t it?! I’ve been bursting at the seems trying not to share Kimberly Chau’s beautiful photos of the all of the loveliness, especially the goodies that Buttercup brought to life from my slightly out of control sweet tooth rambling. But alas, here it is, and I love how it turned out!

Now for the dirty details, and win $200 to Minted to style your very own Easter dessert table…

St. Patty’s day is just a week away, and as much as I wish I had some extra gold laying around to give away, I think a box of chocolate will have to do for now! So I decided to dress up some golden chocolate favors with a You’re My Pot of Gold printables and even a clover or two! Here’s how–

Materials:
White or kraft boxes
Rolos
Gold glitter
Craft glue
Clear full sheet labels
Pot of gold printables (click to download the Four Leaf Clover Tag Printable and the Pot of Gold Printable)

I painted kraft boxes white, and then printed out the labels and four leaf clover tag.

For the tag – use a toothpick to fill the four leaf clover with a little glue and sprinkle on gold glitter if you’d like (or gold foil!), and tape or glue in place on the boxes once you’ve filled them with golden goodies. Rolos make the perfect combination!

DIY // Scroll Test Tube Invitations

October 1, 2013

DIY test tube party invitations by Sugar & Cloth

I’ll be super honest with you, I’m kind of a wimp. I don’t do scary well at all. I’m the twenty-five year old that still covers her eyes in movies and has to run and jump in bed after something creepy (I wish I was joking). Alas, it should come as no surprise that decorating for Halloween is not really my thing. I’m all about some pumpkins and lattes, but scary or gory I don’t  do. Dinner parties on the other hand, I got that covered!

These five-minute DIY scroll test tube invitations are indeed for those that are faint of heart but still want to celebrate. You can make them as creepy crawly as you’d like by adding little knick knacks (like spiders or fingers), or leave them simple with a scroll and plastic bone. It’s kind of mystery dinner meets Halloween, if you will.

Materials:

  • Martha Stewart plastic test tubes, c/o
  • Martha Stewart graphic decoupage paper, c/o
  • Dired moss
  • Cardstock
  • Tape
  • Twine

DIY test tube party invitations by Sugar & Cloth Fill each test tube with a tiny bit of dried moss, leaving enough room to still fit your invitations.

Write or print your invites onto card stock and layer the graphic gold decoupage paper beneath and seal them together with tape. Roll the invite up, and tape or wrap with twine, then insert it into the tube with a little knick knack like plastic bones from the Dollar Store.
